Wow, where did the last 6 weeks go!?!  A lot has happened, Sam turned 10 (say what?!), Halloween (we still have so much candy left!), 6 Fall baseball tournaments (2 first place & 1 second place...woot woot!), I broke my leg (yep, both bones in my lower right leg) and Thanksgiving.  Whew, no wonder I have been MIA for so long. 
Since I broke my leg I won't be able to sew this Holiday Season. Yep, total bummer. Luckily, I broke it before Black Friday because I was able to do 90% of my Christmas online over the past 2 days.  A blessing since I won't be able to drive for 6-10 weeks (anyone want to come over and hang out so I don't go completely stir cRaZy?).  And I got some really great deals :) 
I figured that just because I can't sew doesn't mean that everyone else won't be sewing, right? So, I will be holding a couple of giveaways over the next week or so (Don't worry, I will get the hubs to mail them out).  Not sure exactly what the goodies will be yet but I know 1 of them will be for my 2.5" strip scraps from this quilt top.  Perfect for a quick table runner or whatever your creative mind comes up with :)
That's it for me. To help livin up this post here is a pic of me and my cousin at our Thanksgiving day celebration at my parent's house.  He had surgery on his knee just a few days prior so he & I got to sit in matching recliners all day while people waited on us :)
I would love to hear what you have been up to or what wonderful projects you are working on.  I will try not to be too jealous ;) Be sure to come back for a visit next week and enter in my giveaways!

Wow, what a bummer. Glad you got your shopping done, though. I will be excited for that giveaway - I love Sweetwater and missed out on that fabric since I was brand new to quilting.

Oh, Beth, so sorry about your leg. I hope it doesn't give you too much pain. Do you have some hand stitching projects to work on? If not, maybe you should. It keeps your hands busy and keeps you sane too. Hope for a speedy recovery!

So sorry, I have been their - take care and slow down. You can do knitting, embroidery and watch lots of movies.

Oh my! So sorry that you broke your leg, I hope you are taking it nice and easy. I have missed you in this space so I am glad you are back! You have tackled more than your able bodied friends :) Shopping?! Yeah, I am so doing that pronto!

Oh Beth, I hate it for you! I hope you are healing and not too bored sitting around. Do you knit or crochet? Perfect excuse for that I guess. :)
